The road urban passenger transport is the main type of transport used by the people. It is

conditioned by its maneuverability and different driving ability, depending on the type of rolling

stock. The municipalities give the ments for the type of rolling stock, moving on each bus

line. It determines the number of lines, serving by a given type of rolling stock and the need to

develop its schedules. By the following restrictions - set schedule on the route line, fixed time of

arrival and departure from each stop on the route, the type of rolling stock, traffic in the city, the

study investigates the options of vehicles serving given lines. It creates a model for a determination

of the schedule and of the d number of vehicles, moving on the serviced routes. It sets

limitations with main impact on the rolling stock schedule in order to minimize the number of

vehicles. As a result, the main task of the study will be achieved - servicing given lines with

minimum number of vehicles, which is optimal variant
